Episode 232 / Rockabilly Shakin'

Playing tracks by

Brian Setzer, Tom Stormy Trio feat. Rhythm Sophie, Gizzelle, Don Terry, Mickey Gilley and more.

Chart positions

This upload was 9th in the #rockabilly chart and 13th in the #rock 'n' roll chart.

We continue with our series of wild rockabilly rave-ups, which in addition to our usual quota of 50s mayhem, also includes a selection of the rockin’ and boppin’ stars of tomorrow -- check out Don’t You Mess With Me by Finland's Relax Trio or Humdinger by Gizzelle! And of course, just in time for Hallowe'en, we bring you the original version of Rockin' In The Graveyard as well as I'm A Madman. You gotta have a ducktail!


Johnny Switchblade

The intro was a grabber: "L et's get real, real GONE for a change." Truer words were never spoken, The King was right. Stellar episode, Mon Kapitan, all 50 songs. Who knew there were so many songs about D.A. haircuts? And they were great songs... if I could, I'd have a Ducktail like Ricky Nelson...

And don't forget "Don't Mess With My Ducktail" by Joe Clay from 1956! Believe it or not, Cub Coda (who was smokin' in the boys room with Brownsville Station) included it on an 80s album as Cub Coda and the Points!

Pete Feenstra
